Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Cabernet from this iconic 40-year-old vineyard consistently delivers power, structure and rich concentrated black fruit. The 2010 Cold Creek Cab shows the approachability of the cooler vintage. The wine delivers black cherry, chocolate notes with typical Cold Creek weight and user friendly power. This is 100% pure Cold Creek Cab because this fruit deserves to stand on its own!

Critical Acclaim

"For thoughts on Chateau Ste Michelle's uniqueness and recent evolution, consult my extensive April, 2013 text designed to introduce recent tasting notes. Last tasted by me in its finished blend shortly before bottling, Ste Michelle's 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Cold Creek Vineyard combines plushness of texture and depth of flavor (dark berries, tobacco, chocolate) with welcome vivacity and saliva-inducing salinity.
Range: 89-90"

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity.
